On Sunday, compete to find bike parking spots in the FixCity Bike Rack Roundup, a contest to push through the FixCity project’s pilot campaign for 300 new racks in Williamsburg and Greenpoint. Even if you don’t live in north Brooklyn, you can help get this experiment in participatory transportation planning off the ground and win nifty prizes like a B’s Bikes gift basket (pictured) or an NY Transit Museum multi-tool. If you’re coming from south Brooklyn or Queens, you can travel with TA’s Brooklyn Committee on their monthly ride or meet them at the Pulaski Bridge.

Then on Monday night, Livable Streets is co-hosting Transportation Alternatives’ Community Board Jammy Jam, a party where you can learn about community board membership and complete your application over drinks and dinner. Joining your community board is an incredibly powerful way to help shape our city’s planning decisions, and this event will get you through paperwork with fun and ease.

We hope you’ll join us for some good times and a better city!
